This is a pretty keen capture Tom. Some days I tune page after page and then an image comes along of something or some way of looking...and this fits into that arena..I have heard of the bird by name and maybe somewhere run across a pic but past it by. Now I can put the notes and image together nicely...well done...it works for me!

Nice colors in this one Tom... I like the pose and the crop very much. I love the markings on this bird especially the stripes on chest and neck. Lovely work.
Evelynn : )
My husband was discouraged that it took so long to get through Portland when he went up to Ridgefield the other day. He also found the refuge pretty crowded. He got a couple of nice shots though.

Great shot of the bittern. Well composed and a great pose in the reedbeds. You did well to get a clear shot. Excellent sharpness and POV.
